Will The Russian Conspiracy Theory Start WWIII?

The Liberals developed the Russian conspiracy theory to rationalize their electoral defeat and delegitimize the President. Will it destroy the planet?

Maybe the people who started the Russian conspiracy theory about the Trump Administration actually wanted to start a war with Russia, but I doubt it. Nevertheless, that is getting more likely because of it. Donald Trump is right to say that our relationship with Russia has massively deteriated because of the Mueller investigation and the preposterous accusations that are flung about by the media.

But I hope Donald Trump is not passing the buck. Ultimately, he is President and foreign policy decisions are made by him!

The Daily Mail reports, “‘Get ready Russia,’ the ‘missiles are coming’: Trump makes terrifying Twitter threat to Putin and ‘gas killing animal’ Assad after Kremlin vows to shoot down any missiles fired at Syria and attack U.S. ships – and Trump blames ‘bad blood’ on Mueller probe

Donald Trump used Twitter on Wednesday to warn that a missile attack on Syria is imminent, hours after the Kremlin vowed to shoot down any rockets fired at the Assad regime in retaliation for last week’s poison gas atrocity. 

The president tweeted: ‘Russia vows to shoot down any and all missiles fired at Syria. Get ready Russia, because they will be coming, nice and new and “smart!” You shouldn’t be partners with a Gas Killing Animal who kills his people and enjoys it!’

Trump followed up with a second Twitter blast, claiming America’s rapport with Moscow has never been worse.

‘Our relationship with Russia is worse now than it has ever been, and that includes the Cold War,’ he tweeted. ‘There is no reason for this.’

‘Russia needs us to help with their economy, something that would be very easy to do, and we need all nations to work together. Stop the arms race?’

Trump suggested two hours later that Moscow doesn’t want to be wrapped up in Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia probe, which has been scouring Washington and New York for evidence that the president’s 2016 campaign colluded with the Kremlin to help him win.

‘Much of the bad blood with Russia is caused by the Fake & Corrupt Russia Investigation, headed up by the all Democrat loyalists, or people that worked for Obama,’ Trump wrote, adding that there is ‘No Collusion, so they go crazy!’

His threats came hours after Moscow’s ambassador to Lebanon, Alexander Zasypkin, said any U.S. missiles fired at Syria would be shot down by Russia and the launch sites targeted. In response to Trump’s tweet, Russia’s foreign ministry said ‘smart missiles should fly towards terrorists, not legal government.’
